I felt the desperation and the sheer terror in Riker's voice at the prospect of being sent back. Choked me up for a couple of days.
Yes, it did have that effect on me. Felt nauseous for a couple of days. It came out of nowhere unexpectedly, and I felt horrible at the prospect that they were being sentenced to go back to that terror for the good of the other parallel universes. Wasn't exactly a fair deal for them, and their failed attempt at resisting was like watching someone scream in terror at the prospect of being tortured, like in some horror movies. Their quick death was only mildly satisfactory.
